Turn a tree into a harp. Turn a table into a drumkit. Turn a chair into a MIDI controller. Mogees gives you an entire world of new creative possibilities and is now available on the market!
Mogees combines a vibration sensor with intelligent music software, transforming any object around you into a unique musical instrument.
The Mogees sensor is a high quality contact microphone that captures every vibration you create as you play any object.
It is also the first ever to be designed to work with smartphones as well as with standard audio equipment and computers using our custom Mogees adapter.
The app is available for both iPhones, iPods and iPads running iOS 8 or newer.
The Mogees software is also available as VST/AU plugin for Mac and soon for Windows PC in order to run Mogees in any digital audio workstation such as Live, Logic, Cubase etc.
THE MOGEES DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY
The sensor detects the vibrations you create when touching the physical object and send them to the Mogees software, which will detect the audio frequencies generated by your gesture and will tune the sound of your instrument accordingly in real-time.
The most unique feature is that the software can learn a series of different ’gestures’ recorded by the users, such as taps or scratches and recognise them during performance.
Each gesture you record can be either associated to MIDI notes, samples or one of our growing collection of Mogees sound engines, specially designed to allow fine grain control over synthesis parameters with your gestures
(look at this video for a quick example).
Four Mogees sound engines are already available in the app and more will be added soon :
• Muon : a physical modelling re-synthesiser. Every acoustic sound in the real world is created by an impact of two bodies: a resonator (for example the string of a guitar) and an exciter (for example a plectrum). With Muon it is possible to emulate the sound of a variety of resonators made of different materials, where the exciter becomes any sound captured by the Mogees sensor.
• Interpol808 : a classic drum machine emulator;
• Blue Steel : a complex Karplus-Strong steel string resonator;
• Foxtrot : a retro-electro percussive drum synth.
Midi is the universal language of digital music. Through MIDI, you can fully integrate Mogees with other audio gear.
Sync Mogees with your existing tracks: every Midi note and parameter of the sounds you associate to your gestures can be automated from your sequencer. For example you can associate a thumb tap with a bass synth and its notes will change accordingly on where you are in the song (see example here).
Turn anything into a Midi controller (see example here). Your gestures can trigger different MIDI notes with velocity and control any synth or effect. Control a reverb effect by hitting the side of a drum. Trigger a sound by tapping on the body of your guitar. Play your favourite drum samples by tapping different parts of a table.
Mogees Ltd is a start-up based in East London. Our product, Mogees, is a device that turns everyday objects into unique music instruments - breaking the boundaries between the digital and the physical world. It consists of a vibration sensor and a mobile app that transform the vibrations that we make when we touch a physical object into music on the fly. After two very successful Kickstarter campaigns, its PRO version is currently used by thousands of musicians and artists around the globe. The company is populated with young and highly motivated creative individuals that form the core of our team. We work hard but enjoy our work and find time to make it fun.
